The athletics director at Peter's school has created a phone tree that is used to notify team players in the event a game has to be canceled or rescheduled. The phone tree is initiated when the director calls two captains. During the second stage of the phone tree, the captains each call two players. During the third stage of the phone tres these players each call two other players. The phone tree continues until all players have been notified. If thereas 50 players on the teams, how many stages will it take to notify all of the players?

Stage 1: the two captains are called  -->  total number = 2

Stage 2: four new players are called  -->  total number = 6

Stage 3: eight new players are called  -->  total number = 14

Stage 4: sixteen new players are called  -->  total number = 30

Stage 5: twenty new players are called  -->  total number = 50
